Street style hustlers, prepare your wallet as Adidas has announced that Yeezy will come in new shades next year. Adidas continues its collaboration with Ye – formerly known as "Kanye West" – and recently offered a glimpse of the new fruition of their partnership in 2022. 

For the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN series, the collaborations will present new spring-inspired colorways, titled "Metallic," "Resin," "Geode" and "Wash Cream." 

Each release features an almost pastel shade set against sleek black. The aptly-colored nylon uppers will feature the pair's titular tone with backward "700" text under a reflective finish on the lateral profile atop the tonal sole unit.

"Metallic", set to launch on December 20, is the earliest release of the series. It dons a "never-before-seen" pale grey upper and slightly charcoal touches throughout the design. "Resin", to be released in February, is sporting the light green hue, almost akin to pale olive.

Up next is "Geode", featuring the subtle version of Pantone's 2022 Color of the Year Very Peri but not quite as the pale purple looks a bit more like lilac. The variant will release in April.

The cherry on top is "Washed Cream", the last to release, decked out in muted yellow that looks almost like gold. The release date for "Washed Cream" remains a secret to be announced any time soon.


Yeezy Boost 350 v2

The team has decided to close out 2021 busier than previous months in the year, and just releasing four variants on one series is not deemed to be enough. Ye did promise that there will be Yeezys for everybody, and that day is here.

Donning a strong resemblance to one of the most sought Yeezy pairs in 2016, which continues to fetch upwards of $700, "Core Red", the combo now announces that they will launch Yeezy 350 v2 "Dazzling Blue".

Hypebae commented that the black and blue might come across as a fashion faux pas, but the deep contrast works perfectly. The bold royal blue color decorates the iconic stripe detail that runs across the medial side, creating an aesthetic that will make fans fall over heels once the batch is released.

But the large selection of 2022, a rare volume after a while, doesn't end there. Fans are also eagerly waiting for the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Beluga Reflective", a new variant following the non-reflective version's release in 2016.

Aside from the notable difference in finish, the pair closely follows the original. The Primeknit has light orange speckle accents on top of the dark shades of grey adjacent, and reflective threads are spread through the shoe.  The warm tone is the perfect stage for the silhouette's classic "SPLY-350" branding at the side stripe.

However, before anyone welcomes Yeezy 350 "Beluga Reflective", see the option for going back to basics. For 2022, the Yeezy team gave the first look at the "Cotton White" colorway of the 350 v2 models.

While an all-white version of the Yeezy 350 was introduced in 2018 via the mass re-release event in September, those were dubbed the "Yeezy 350 Cream" as it featured slight hits off an off-white shade.

On the other hand, this upcoming "Cotton White" series will feature the newer 350 v2 builds with matching cotton white on the clean, pure white Primeknit, matching laces, and the perforated layer beneath the transparent mesh strip.

A mock-up photo suggests full-length BOOST sole units wrapped in translucent white rubber, a slight gum-like hue, and a contrasting outsole. Each lateral side comes with additional detailing in the form of translucent woven post-dyed monofilament side stripes.

The insole graphics feature the new YEEZY mark and globe symbol, similar to its "Cream" predecessor. 

Expected to be released in 2022, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 "Cotton White" will retail for $220 on adidas.com, Yeezy Supply, and Yeezy retail partners worldwide.
